I have shallow acne scars on my face which are fading well with the used of preferon scar treatment and frequent exfoliation. I also have an indentation under my eyes that looks like eyebags but are not. I think it may be due to scarring? Are there any treatment options for me for this? I'm tired of looking tired! Will a laser skin tightening session help? Thank you so much!!
Treatment for Under Eye Dents That Aren't Bags?

"Dents" under the eyes
Without examining you it is impossible to know what exactly is causing the problem you are noticing.
It is possible that the appearance you note is simply a tear trough deformity with or without a fatty tissue bag, or that there is also a component of muscle redundancy (a festoon), or any combination of these....
You should find a surgeon certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery and visit for a consult.
Please don't focus on the procedure you need or think you need... This will be a mistake.
Spend your time and energy finding a quality surgeon you like and can trust, THEN worry about the procedure they recommend...
You'll ultimately get a much better outcome, be safer along the way, and have a better all around experience.
Here is some sound advice on finding a surgeon you like and can trust:
